An exclusive early look at my next book, for Substack readers
At around the age of 8, in a discussion with my mother on "Indians", I replied, "But you killed them all!" That statement has never left me. I'm not sure how someone 8 years old could grasp the darkest, hidden part of US history, but you are the only other person I've heard or read that have uttered these words; "From this vantage point, Jones shows how the enslavement of Africans was not America’s original sin". I consider my as having been prepared for the unveiling of these truths through other authors, Mark Charles mostly and I am in full agreement with his book: Unsettling Truths: The Ongoing, Dehumanizing Legacy of the Doctrine of Discovery. Will be curious to see how your work intertwines with his. Fully enjoyed the seminar at Brookings on White Christian Nationalism!
Cannot wait to read it!!! Just placed my order. Thank you for your work.
